What is Shipt:
Shipt is a grocery shopping delivery service where a shopper goes to a store to shop for someone. Shipt isn’t limited to just groceries however. As a Shipt shopper you may end up going to Target to get home decor or Office Max for a laptop. However, most Shipt shoppers mostly buy groceries and go to supermarkets, including Costco.
What is a Shipt shopper
When shopping for Shipt, consumers create orders through the Shipt app or website. Shipt then sends the order to a Shipt shopper via text. As a Shipt shopper you get the text and head to the designated store and start shopping. While you’re there you get live texts from the person you’re shopping for with any last minute add-ons or changes. A nice feature for both the shopper and the consumer because no one gets upset that they got the wrong item. Especially useful when something is not in stock and may need to be substituted.
The service is kind of like when your parent or caregiver sent you to the store when you were younger, except that you get paid for it.
The Shipt Shopper Community
The Shipt shopper then delivers the groceries and done. Well, not really. Shipt shoppers are like a little community, where they’ve even created a Shipt Shopper Lingo and rally support for one another. Often, side gig jobs are isolated. It feels like you’re not really part of the company, and you don’t get to know other people that work in the same company. That’s not the case with Shipt though.
Shipt started in 2014 in Birgmingham, Alabama, and were later bought by The Target Corporation in 2017. Today, they are in over 5000 cities around the US.
